Duffy has had increasing digestive issues--often I am awakened to let him out at 1 or 4 or 5:30, and consequentially don't get enough sleep. I simply have to get with a homeopath to work on Duffy's vaccine damaged gut :( My damaged leg still bothers me and lying on my left side (which is my favorite) is hard to do. For those of you without FB, I sliced up my leg in July with a weedeater, when the cover flew off. Major ouch, let me tell you! And what I thought were lateral cuts, have turned out to be a lot deeper than I thought. As Dave put it, I pretty much turned my leg into hamburger! Eeesh!
But life goes on, and Second Wind Dreams put on a Christmas Craft and Gift Show yesterday and today, so I was there all day yesterday and a couple of hours today. We had a 50/50 draw and a raffle with nice donated prizes from the crafts people. Here are some pictures from yesterday.
|Crafts people rented a table for $30 for 2 days--which is a pretty good deal--money going to SWD|
|I managed to spend some money too!|
|Priscilla, Diane, Doreen (standing), some lady who's wondering if she should actually drink from that cup, and Claire|
|Dianna, Kay--talking on the phone--and moi|

Farmfair starts tomorrow and the Canadian Finals Rodeo starts next Wednesday and today I was down at Northlands stuffing Aggie bags for the schools kids coming in next week. That's why I was only at the EG for a couple of hours.We are going to have almost 1000 kids, Grades 1-3, coming next week. We worked like dogs from 10-1:30 getting those bags ready--2 of us (there were 8 volunteers) didn't even take a lunch break. The little stuffed cows arrived late so all the bags that had been done had to be stuffed with them and then counted into groups of 10 and tied. On Monday I get to help register the school groups and hand out those bags!! Save-on is a sponser for the Abert'a Own Agriculture so we stuffed Save-on plastic bags--we don't want to see them for a long time!!
Tomorrow is the River City Round-up in downtown Edmonton with a caravan of 30 wagons and 25 outriders, all coming right to Churchill Square. I am working as a games assistant, but hope to get some good pictures to post tomorrow!! Dave took Duffy down to Olds yesterday, because with me being away from the house so much, it wasn't going to be fair to Duffy to be alone. But they will be back next Friday, and we are going to the matinee performance of the rodeo!! Yee Haw!! By the way, I bought a genuine cowboy hat!! Lammle's Western Wear is a sponser of Farmfair and the CFR, and is offering 20% off their merchandise to Northlands volunteers, so voila, time to get a hat. Maybe I can find someone to take picture of me in it!!!
